Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson dismissed suggestions Crystal Palace are too reliant on Wilfried Zaha as the talismanic forward was forced to miss the 1-0 defeat at Burnley after testing positive for coronavirus. Newcastle head to Selhurst Park on Friday night for their Premier League clash, hoping to take advantage of a Palace side who will still be without their talisman. Burnley claimed their first Premier League victory of the season to move out of the relegation zone thanks to Chris Wood’s eighth-minute strike, which was the Clarets’ first top-flight goal at Turf Moor this campaign.

Roy Hodgson said “We’ve scored 12 which is more than we’ve had in previous years after nine games, I’ve had two years of listening to people tell us we don’t score enough goals and we don’t have enough goalscorers. There are goals in the team, we do have players who can score and who will score. There are 29 games to go and the goals will come and will come from lots of different sources, I’m convinced of that. We were very much on the front foot (in the second half) and taking the game to Burnley. There were a lot of situations around their penalty area but unfortunately the last part when we shot wasn’t there and when it was we found the goalkeeper in excellent form.”
